Plano-Based Food Pantry Set to Serve Thousands Monday – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth
A Plano-based pantry expects to provide food, water, and other essentials to more than 4,000 people in need after last week’s historic winter storm.
In a press release, Minnie’s Food Pantry said 4,217 people had registered before the organization’s “Emergency Response Giveaway”.
The cars were in line for the event – from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. long before sunrise, the organization announced.
“Last week’s storm surprised us all. No matter how well prepared you may have been, no one expected to be left without electricity for days or flood their houses after pipes burst. And still having millions of households without access to safe drinking water is a problem in and of itself, “founder Cheryl Jackson said in the press release.” We have received calls from people who only need one meal because they cannot eat or water their local grocery stores and we have to respond to their cry. “
According to the organization’s website, each family will receive a grocery box, a Hello Fresh meal set and a crate of water while supplies last.
